In May, Picasso arrives in Paris and rents a studio in a ramshackle building in Montmartre, called by Max Jacob a "floating laundry" (Le Bateau-Lavoir) for its similarity with laundries on the Seine. Pablo lives and works in Bateau-Lavoir from May 1904 to September 1909 and from the winter of 1911 to the spring of 1912. He often visits the Lapin Agile cabaret in Montmartre and the Medrano Circus, in search for both, entertainments and inspirations for work. One of the models, Madeleine, often seeing in Picasso work, characterizes the transitional stage from his Blue Period to the Rose Period. With the help of the Catalan artist Ricard Canals Pablo creates his second engraving Le Repas Frugal. At the end of the summer Picasso meets his first muse, Fernande Olivier, he meets the poets Guillaume Apollinaire and André Salmon, as well as the German collector Wilhelm Uhde.
